Helpful hints

  • If Splenda® no calorie sweetener (granular form) is used, calories are reduced to 96 and carbohydrate is reduced to 6 grams per tart (1/2 Carbohydrate Choice).
  • Try low-fat or fat-free cream cheese to reduce the fat content.
  • Do not over beat mixture.
  • Do not over bake—tarts may appear soft and moist, but will firm up after cooling.

could you use graham cracker crumbs instead of the vanilla wafer? Dietitian comment: You can make the change but there will be slight increases sodium, potassium and phosphorus.

Just made these Tarts. They are very tasty and easy to make. I used Splenda sugar. The one thing I did not like was the wafer. I am going to make them again on Friday for a family gathering but without the wafer.

These really are very good, and do taste like cheesecake. I agree that it makes closer to 18, as another person commented.

I made these for my patients and they all loved them. Great way to help with portion control and no mess when serving.

This recipe tastes great, but I was only able to get 18 servings instead of 24. Excellent after-dinner portion-controlled treat!
